During the course of employment, employees are frequently required to sign documentation. It begins with the job offer (signing the employment contract) and continues throughout employment with IT policies, security policies, HR policies or sales compensation plans.
And this typically is the domain of paper, post and/or email. But recently, forward-thinking organizations have begun utilizing electronic signature solutions to enable documents to be signed anywhere, anytime on any device in a few clicks.
The mutual benefits of eSignature
For those organizations that use eSignature, the benefits include a dramatic improvement in turnaround times. Imagine receiving your employment contract and signing it online, instead of printing it, signing it with a pen, and dropping it in the mail. This time advantage can literally move up a stating date by one to two weeks, by enabling the employee to give their notice to their current employer sooner. After all, nobody gives notice until they have a signed offer from their new employees right?!
The time required of HR resources to administer eSignatures vs. conventional “wet” signatures in significantly less, thus increasing productivity.
Let’s not forget customer experience. As a prospective employee, if you’re on-boarding process is smooth and digitized, you’ll have a more positive impression of your new employer right from start, and this is a key component of employee engagement.
